OUTWOOD Academy Adwick has recorded a 100 per cent A-Level pass rate with an average of two As and a B per pupil.

In relation to QCA points, the Woodlands-based academy had an average point per student of 833 - up 109 from last year - and an average UCAS score of 351.8, which was an increase of 55.1 compared to its 2011 results.

Cambridge prospect Ryan Ackroyd, 18, was a standout performer when he became the first pupil at Outwood to achieve three A*s, those were in physics, chemistry and maths. The Adwick teenager also got an A in a self-studied AS Level in further maths.

Executive principal, Julie Slater, said: “The results that the students have achieved are simply overwhelming. Not only have they worked really hard but their efforts have been rewarded when it matters most. Ryan is an example of what can be achieved and we have no doubt that he will go on to be a great success in his chosen career.

She added: “These results are testament to the dedication and commitment shown by the teaching staff, as well as the students here at Outwood Academy Adwick. Well done to each and every one of them, we have proved together that we have an Academy that we can all be very proud of.”
